After four years of reporting on the growing crisis of climate change for ThinkProgress, Brad Johnson is joining the Citizen Engagement Lab as the campaign manager of Forecast the Facts, a new campaign dedicated to mobilizing people on behalf of scientific truth about global warming. The 20,000 members of Forecast the Facts are challenging the American Meteorological Society to defend climate science from the onslaught of denial by television meteorologists, and have convinced General Motors to stop funding the climate-denier Heartland Institute. Heartland’s efforts to build a climate-denier classroom curriculum were first reported by Brad. He will continue as a guest contributor to Climate Progress.
